While American soap operas are tanking -- Telenovelas are bigger than ever ... and it's all thanks to a constant influx of sexy, young, love makers like Eduardo Yanez. No offense, Susan Lucci.

Hmmm... pretty good point. Haven'*****ched alot of soaps, but there do seem to be alot of old people on it. Then I noticed soaps tried to get younger, but they kept throwing in these underage kids. IDK... think those Spanish soaps got the right formula.

Well his idea may be true but I don't think so. I know on the boards at All My Children everyone is outraged (and has been for years)that they were bringing in all these yung people and all the regulars were being dumped-as well as writing everyone out of character and in general sabotaging the series...it is the regulars who drew us in and kept us there and they were treated with such disrespect.

The reason telenovelas are so successful is because they only last 3 to 4 months. Soap operas last years, people lose interest. Besides, telenovelas have only beautiful people as actors and the stories are mostly love betrayals and very sexual.

Let's see if they last 40+ years like One Life to Live and All My Children or are the Telenovelas jus*****ered down pornos with "a constant influx of sexy, young, love makers"????

@Kitty Angel. That's exactly the point. They don't plan on being around for 40 years. Latin American novelas are written to only last a few months. Then new talent is introduced in a new novela. Perhaps that is the formula soap operas need to get people back.

No, it's because America has over 20 million illegal aliens from Mexico and 10 million plus from other Latin American countries who speak Spanish...THAT'S WHY THESE STUPID SOAPS ARE #1. Not because they are good, but because the illegal men are working and the women are at home too afraid to go out, so they stay at home watching these stupid soaps.

The only reason they're popular is because so many illegal immigrants in this country actually enjoy them.

TMZ please don't ever call Eduardo Yanez "sexy,young" I might be sick.

P.S. Why am I not surprised someone would play the race card, how typical.
